What a unique property! My spot was very private, open to the stars-I saw 3 shooting stars laying in my tent that night. The care and concern he has for the culture of the local natives and Mother Earth is very evident. He has a fun creative mind that comes through in his use of the property. Lots of bunnies and butterflies. He was kind and helpful and let me settle down in peace. I’d definitely stay here again!

This place is really cool, fun, and beautiful. The camp sites are on the small side and a quick walk from parking. The host is very friendly and has created an incredible space to visit and chill. Directions could be a little better especially for driving in at night, but I did find it. There is also some nice hiking nearby and breathtaking views.

I showed up here as a solo traveler and was immediately enchanted with the place. Everywhere you look there is something delightful to see, and the land feels rich with life. It felt like a soul healing oasis in the middle of the Sonoran desert. I would encourage anyone who comes to do so with an open heart and humbleness. M is a wonderful host and does everything he can to make it feel like a safe, inviting place and has utmost respect for the wildlife. I loved my time here and hope to go back one day.

Interesting place! Definitely not your typical campsite. If you’re looking for a place and are more or less self-sufficient, this place will do just fine.

MP's place is amazing. There's a communal area with a flush toilet and solar shower. The site we chose was isolated and beautiful. One of the great parts is it's right near a cell tower so you have full connectivity when you need it.

Cool spot! We showed up after dark—a flat tire on 86 delayed us a bit—and M was nice enough to point us around and tell us what was what.

I absolutely love this place! I am old Retired Alaskan nurse with German Shepherd traveling. This place was absolutely perfect. It is eclectic. Has showers, toilets, privacy, everything I love.

A little more activity, people, cars than we had expected, altho the host explained it was unusual. He was super nice and place was fascinating with a good vibe.
